        Meet Our Management Team

Chelsea Crain
Director: Walnut Location 


I grew up in Schertz, TX, but have moved around a whole lot. I’ve lived in some cool places, like Venezuela, Puerto Rico and Cayman Islands, but all before I was two so I remember nothing about that. I went to Texas State University (Go Bobcats!!) and graduated last August with a Bachelors degree in English and a minor in Media Studies. I also went to Texas A&M for two years where my major was Education. I have worked with kids for a little over 7 years and have enjoyed every bit of it.

I have been at New Braunfels Academy for four years now and I love it more every day! I have worked in just about all the classrooms here and now have the best job because I get to spend time with each and every age group every day! The children and families I have met here have changed my life. There is nothing better in this life than feeling loved by a child and I am so blessed to get to be a part of so many cool kiddos lives!!  


Kristi Lampkin
Director: County Line Location

Hi, I am Kristi Lampkin. I am originally from San Diego, CA and moved to San Antonio, TX over a decade ago. I’m a true Texan at heart and truly enjoy living here with my wonderful husband and fur baby. I loved working with children so much that I changed my major to Education, and I immediately began working as a teacher at a learning center in 2009. I have been in the education field ever since and have worked with all age groups.

In 2012, I started working for New Braunfels Academy as a Lead Teacher in the toddler room at our Walnut location. By 2015, I received my CDA and was given the opportunity to be the Director to our County Line location.  It is so difficult to put into words the joy that children bring me whenever I am around them. In this complicated world, they make life seem so simple with their innocent and gentle perspectives. I feel so blessed to be able to work with children for a living and am blessed to be a part of your child’s life.

Jessica Adams
Executive Director

Hello, my name is Jessica Adams. I grew up in San Antonio where I met my husband over 13 years ago. We have been married for almost a decade and have two active boys! When I am not working I love cooking and crafting, am active in our church, and spend time with family and friends.

I have a BA in Early Childhood Education from the University of the Incarnate Word and have worked in childcare on both the teaching and management side for over 6 years. Through my education and experience, I have developed a philosophy for early education that mirrors that of New Braunfels Academy. I believe that a strong early education based on exploration and play will instill a lifelong love of learning in our children. In addition, as a mother, I understand the importance of a secure, loving environment where children can grow and learn. In 2013, I was blessed to be hired as the Director of our first New Braunfels Academy location. Alongside the dedicated owners and amazing staff, we have worked for four years to influence the lives of so many incredible children. This opportunity I have been given to create an environment for young children where they can learn, play, and be loved is more than I ever dreamed!

Of course, this would not be possible without the support of the staff and families. Therefore, in addition to being committed to the education and welfare of your children, I also dedicate myself to taking excellent care of all of the New Braunfels Academy families and staff.
